How to Import a Cloned Image into a New and/or Different VERDE environment.

How to Import a Cloned Image into a New and/or Different VERDE environment.

Product Line:  VERDE

A Cloned image is NOT a copy of the original Gold Image.  A cloned image has pointers to the original Gold Image, which makes it dependent on the original.  

If you need the cloned image in another environment, simply perform the following:

  1. Ensure all sessions associated with the Gold and Cloned images shut down
  2. Grab the gold image (/home/vb-verde/verde-orgs/org-#/gold/<GoldImageName>) and perform the import procedure into the new/different VERDE environment.
  3. Bring up the newly imported gold image to ensure it's in good shape.
  4. Now, Grab the Cloned Image  (/home/vb-verde/verde-orgs/org-#/gold/<ClonedImageName>) and perform the import procedure into the new/different VERDE environment.
  5. As you may detect, the cloned is ALWAYS dependent on the gold.  The Cloned must always have the gold to refer to.
